What's New in Version 1.2
Some small fixes for iOS 9
Great... But not same as old integrated version
I was a big fan of the integrated desktop app but, unfortunately, when Spotify took those away, I couldn't find anything on par with what that Lazify app could do. There's still nothing else I know of that lets you search for similars with entire playlists or more than 1 song or artist (besides Pandora, but that's a whole 'nother thing). I knew this iPhone app wouldn't be able to do the same thing so I never saw the point in paying $1 for limited capabilities. But I'm hoping my $1 will go towards supporting the developers to hopefully create a web-based version of this wonderful app that used to be amazing in a non-mobile format. B/c I honestly might pay a small monthly fee for a desktop version. This app itself is a little tricky at first. If you choose 'Play' option, it creates a "Lazify" playlist and then will always replace whatever was in there with your new search results. The 'Save' option will create a new playlist with those results. In all, it does a great job. The results are comparable to Spotify radio (maybe a little better), but obviously you can't refine the results along the way with thumbs up/down. I still miss the old desktop-based version. Support the developers and help make it happen!
Great for Music Discovery
The app has been great for building solid playlists and discovering new artists. However, lately the app gets frozen on a white screen after I hit "Let's Go." I hope there's a fix soon.
It's a shame that Lazify is not integrated into the Spotify desktop client anymore, but it's still a really great tool - it quickly produces similar-artists/similar-tracks playlists (based on the Last.fm API) and hands them over to Spotify for playback. In my experience, the resulting playlists are always exceptionally good and have a great flow to them, no matter what kind of music I throw at the app.
I highly recommend Lazify to all Spotify users looking for a quick and dirty way to create pitch perfect playlists with the tap of a button and discover new music based on old favorites.
